The US State Department, commenting on Paris recalling its ambassador from Washington: We intend to continue discussions with France

Payne said: “We note with regret France’s decision to recall its ambassador to Australia for consultations following the decision on the Attack Class project. Australia understands France’s deep disappointment with our decision.”

He added that the Australian Foreign Ministry highly values ​​its relations with France and considers it an important partner that ensures stability in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

“We hope for new cooperation with France on the many issues that are important to both sides and on the basis of common values,” he added.

The French Foreign Minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, previously stated that Paris is recalling the French ambassadors to the United States and Australia due to Australia’s withdrawal from the submarine agreement with France. Radio “RTL” indicated that this is the first case of its kind in the history of France’s relations with the United States and Australia.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, US President Joe Biden and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced earlier this week the creation of the Military Partnership in Defense and Security (AUKUS). Australia also announced its withdrawal from the agreement on the purchase of submarines with the French company Naval Group. This Franco-Australian agreement worth 56 billion euros, which was described as the “decade of the century”, was to build 12 (non-nuclear) “Barracuda” class strike submarines. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian called the Australian decision a “stab in the back”.
